Habitat around Chantrell Creek Elementary is to be the focus of some tender loving care Saturday, Sept. 22.

Spearheaded by Sunnyside Acres Heritage Society, the restoration effort is part of the society's commitment to restore and maintain links between Sunnyside Acres and nearby green spaces.

Vancity, the City of Surrey and Starbucks are all supporting the Sept. 22 event, and organizers are hopeful others in the community will also lend a hand. Volunteers of all ages are invited to turn out for a few hours of "happy labour," helping remove invasive species and plant native plants.

The enhancement work is to get underway at 10 a.m. and will proceed rain or shine. Those planning to help are advised to dress for the weather and bring garden gloves.

Meet at 2586 137A St.
